As cold as ice

We are truly lucky to work in San Diego, America’s Finest City. You realize just how lucky when you aren’t in San Diego …

On a recent Saturday morning, I flew from San Diego International Airport (SAN) to Chicago O’Hare (ORD). Stepping off of the MD80 aircraft, I was greeted with a temperature of 14 degrees Fahrenheit … 14 degrees Fahrenheit! In mid-March!! Needless to say, I nearly froze. OK, so I was only wearing shorts and a t-shirt – but that is really beside the point.

After walking through O’Hare’s K Concourse, I boarded my next flight to Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA). We were lucky enough to get de-iced, something we rarely, if ever, see in San Diego. I snapped this photo:


In southern California we don’t have to deal with pesky things like de-icing and snow removal. After a quick call to our Airside Operations Department, I did learn that a couple of the airlines here at SAN do have de-icing equipment on hand, for those rare times when we drop below freezing.

Yes, we are lucky indeed!
